    Pros

    Strong brand, good to have on your CV, innovative HR, has big (ish) budgets to spend. Redundancy package is market leading

    Cons

    Not interested in money saving ideas, if you face doesn't fit don't bother trying to progress in your career, not what you know but who you know. Lots of game players, need a thick skin to work in HR, don't work in HR4HR - seen to many people leave / managed out

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, get rid of the bullies, don't lose the good staff over the bad staff,
